I recently installed a new hot water heater and now i have no pressure any where in the house. The only connections I redid was at the heater. The state water heater I installed had little rubber flappers on the hot and cold side pipes, should i have removed them? They moved freely.

If you're willing to do plumbing work yourself, these and more will show you what to do.
Otherwise, a plumber will be needed to bring an end to the water hammer you are experiencing by installing an air dampener as shown below - kind of like a shock absorber on your car but in this case, the backlash of pressure is softened or eliminated by it or something similar.
Basically what's happening is the water valves are shutting off the water flow so fast, the water flow ends up vibrating the pipes and they bang against what they are next to.
Odds are you were experiencing it before but it wasn't bad enough to be noticed - I installed a set at my water heater and another set right before the water connections for the washer.
i had that problem when i changed my hot water heater, my problem was the sediment buildup in the water line that came from the old tank also check to see if youe shut off valve is opening completely if you did not install a new one. lastly the rubber inserts in the nippiles on your lines may not be open.
you need a new water valve for the unit. The solenoid is getting stuck in the open position (at least partially) and allowing water to continue to come through even after the water valve is no longer energized. This can be caused by normal wear and tear or sediment from your pipes getting stuck in the valve. This is especially true if you have well water or have recently had any plumbing work done in your house like a new hot water heater or something like that installed.
I am not aware of any washers that have built in heaters. Your problem seems to be with your hot water supply in the house. If you have a hot water heater gas or propane pilot may be out, or electric possibly tripped curciut breaker, or if furnace coil , possible furnace servicing is required. Did you just have new machine installed? Did installer forget to turn on the hot water? Basically before you get to upset go backwards from the machine to the problem. It will turn out to be an oversight due to the excitement with your new machine. Enjoy, and GOOD LUCK.
sounds like the mix valve on the washer is broken and not opening properly -- the mix valve is the valve that both hot and cold water are connected to on the back of the machine.. turn off water valves and remove the hoses,, remove the back panel from the washer -- the mixer is held in place by one little screw,, also mark the wires going to the mixer ( hot/cold ) --- remove the mixer valve and take it down to your local appliance repair shop and match it up to a new one -- install the new mixer and connect wires and panel and then hoses and all will be working good as new.
Check that the wash temperature has not been turned down accidentally. If not, then the most likely and obvious cause of this is the element has become faulty and needs replacing. This could also be caused by various other problems such as a faulty thermostat, resettable fuse links or activated over temperature detector, fused links in the power supply, faulty logic board, etc. Call a service engineer ASAP.
this sounds impossible,hold old is the washer? how long are the hoses to the washer?is it the temp pressure valve on the heater that bursts? can you hear the water draining out the drain pipe, this machine don't go into spin till the water has been drained.
First check the filters in the inlet hose and hot water pressure.
Sounds to me like the hot water valve is faulty.
Test the w/machine on a hot water cycle, if you hear a noise and its not filling it up with water,its a faulty hot water valve. Air pressure??
change the water valve and remember it has a little rubber boot on the old water valve,
transfer this to the new valve,or go into option adjustment mode and change you wash temperature settings.
